The Diet Whisperer: 12-Week Reset Plan: Supercharge your metabolism, reverse diabetes, and harmonise your brain clock is a non-fiction book with practical tips for losing weight by Dr Paul Barrington Chell and Dr Monique Hope-Ross.
This book is divided into three value-packed sections. This first part is titled "The Road to Obesity." It elucidated the root causes of obesity. It went ahead to discuss the effective understanding of the food we eat. The major classes of food discussed are macronutrients, which consist of carbohydrates, fat, and protein, and micronutrients, which are vitamins and minerals. The sources of these classes of foods, their health benefits, how to combine the foods for a balanced diet, and their overall role in the body system were discussed here. The second part focused on the road to moving away from obesity. This simply means knowing the steps to take to transition from being obese to having the appropriate weight, which will invariably lead to having a healthy life. The final section communicated the whisperer's food plans and recipes.
After reading this book, I'm convinced that it is safe to refer to it as a "comprehensive textbook" for achieving our desired weight. The book is in-depth and extremely well-detailed. It didn't just jump right into showing readers how to lose weight. Rather, it first outlined the origin or what causes it before going into the ways to lose weight. If you're eager to lose weight, I'm glad to tell you that you've come across the perfect book for you.
I loved that the author included meal plans and recipes for the whisperer's journey for the readers. The readers weren't left to formulate meals by themselves, which might lead to the formulation of meal plans that are not in line with the whisperer's plans. While reading, I discovered that each of the chapters had titles accompanying them. I appreciate this, as it gave readers a peek at the subject matter of the chapters. I liked the incorporation of some diagrams into the narrative. This feature made the writings easily comprehensible. The chapter whispers after each of the chapters offered readers a summary of what was talked about earlier in the chapters in simpler and more precise words. The whisperer mantras spread across the book were humorous and engaging, and I looked forward to seeing more of them.
There aren't any negative aspects. I gladly rate this book five out of five stars because its contents are valuable and highly informative. I encountered only two errors, and as such, it was properly edited. There were the glossary and further reading sections, which proved to be beneficial.
I recommend this book to readers who are eager to be knowledgeable on the connection between the food we eat, ill health, and our weight. Most importantly, readers who long for practical ways to successfully shed some weight will find this book to be just what they need.
